Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)
CBILS can provide working capital for smaller businesses in the UK who are experiencing lost or deferred revenues due to Coronavirus. CBILS is a government-backed scheme provided by the British Business Bank with the aim of supporting the continued provision of finance to UK businesses.
At this time we can offer CBILS to current Close Brothers Asset Finance customers, however we may still be able to help your business so please get in touch if you have any questions regarding CBILS and whether or not your company qualifies.
